On Saturday I felt like going back to basics – back to the natural and raw. My fellow blogger Lidiya and I decided to visit the Natural History Museum. I’ve been there more times than I can count but I don’t think I could ever get too much of it.
Endless chocolate and cream is every girl’s dream. Well, that, and maybe a faster than average metabolism. I can only hope that my personal trainer is not among my frequent readers, as I will undoubtedly earn myself an extra session’s worth of crawl outs for writing this blog post.
I love painting. I used to do it as a kid, and now that I’m an adult (?) I still like to make use of the 10 small pieces of canvas which are (quite literally) at my fingertips.
Last Saturday Vera and I got up early so we could look our best in time for the start of our day at Ascot. It’s only a recommended formal dress code, but as you would expect, we were happy to oblige. There were hair accessories involved, although we didn’t go as far as sourcing special fascinators for the event (those we shall reserve for Royal Ascot next year!).
After almost being put off by train cancellations and an excruciatingly long replacement bus service, we got to Cambridge in the end. It had been a long-standing trip that we had planned so we decided we would not let ourselves take some cosmic interferences as signs!
Having waited all summer to take my favourite trench coat out, I was happy to find that last Sunday offered the perfect weather for it – sunny, but crisp and fresh.
